Communities Mental Health & Wellbeing Fund

Year 1 Awardee

Health and Wellbeing for Adults with learning disabilities

Type of initiative funded: Food


Key priority area: Prevention


Funding awarded: £13358.80


Project description:

The project involves running life skills challenges through the ASDAN programme from our small inhouse training facility training, delivered by our Support team and volunteers to supplement staffing costs. We would aim to complete 6 courses for each apprentice in the year. The Breadmaker believes a blended learning experience of practical work, classroom and learning with ASDAN would make for a more enjoyable and worthwhile experience for adults with learning disabilities, delivering a tangible qualification at the end of each course. Work is widely recognised as having a huge impact on people's wellbeing and mental health and as such the Breadmaker strives to make this an enjoyable reality for adults who would otherwise be denied the opportunity of having a real job within a real business.
